Amazulu Football Club Appoints Former Real Madrid Coach
Following a challenging season where Amazulu Football Club fought to avoid relegation, the team has announced the appointment of a new head coach for the next three years.
Spanish coach Pablo Franco Martin, a seasoned professional with coaching experience in Tanzania, Kuwait, and Spain, has been chosen to lead the team. Amazulu President Bongani Zungu made the announcement on Tuesday evening, expressing his delight with the appointment.
“We are thrilled to announce Pablo Franco Martin as the new head coach of Amazulu Football Club for the next 36 months. The contract has been signed, and he will be arriving at the home of Amazulu Football Club in the coming days,” stated Zungu.
Zungu explained the thorough process undertaken to select Martin as their preferred coach, with multiple applications received and interviews conducted. He expressed satisfaction with the quality of candidates who shared their visions for Usuthu, highlighting the club’s desirability as an attractive prospect for potential head coaches.
Martin brings a wealth of experience to Usuthu, having previously coached Simba Sports Club in Tanzania, as well as having a stint in Kuwait and serving as an assistant coach at Real Madrid in his native Spain.
After finishing 12th in the previous season with 33 points, narrowly avoiding relegation by just three points ahead of Maritzburg United, who went down via play-offs, Amazulu will look to Martin to deliver the success the club eagerly seeks.
